i have had my peanut butter english muffin and am working on my second cup of coffee- so we're all good. i have my panties in a bunch. i try and read a few of the blogs on the right everyday- and i like to do the whole thing on the weekends- because there is just so much damned good stuff out there that people are writing. so- in my morning stroll of reading- i am sensing a theme: people want a 'watch dog' to protect them from the danger of the 'fox in the henhouse.' i shamelessly am ripping off the analogy from another blog's comments section. here's my thought:
ain't gonna happen. we have to fight for ourselves and our way of life whether we like it or not. here's the deal- americans have been conditioned to follow government- we have been groomed to be good little children and let the government handle stuff for us so that we can be busy living our lives. driving around in suburbia in our suvs drinking mocha lattes and watching our 2.3 children in school plays and soccer games. false sense of security. we have a traitor in our midst- and it is our "elected leaders" who have reneged on the leading part- and the elected thing is up for grabs too- but i don't want to get sidetracked. it is up to us- the people- to take back america from the fear mongering and the power grabbing. we have to have another american revolution in this country- and it can start with us- the bloggers. we are in a position to rally the american people. i don't mean like the phony emails i get from the dnc and whatever. i mean by inspiring and encouraging the truth and putting it out there. getting stuff together in our home communities and states- grassroots. it will take much time and work- but what are priorities? yes, your life takes precedence to politics generally speaking- but the truth of the matter is- you won't have your way of life if we don't work hard to save it.
we have a president who admits what the blogsphere has been saying all along- there are secret cia prisons. now that the truth is coming out- how much is the ante going up? how long before political dissonance in america is silenced by citizens going away- like ghosts- into secret prisons? will people swallow that as part of the war on terror? whose terror? we have to take the lead and become the watch dog. there is no one else to depend on. there comes a time in everyone's life where they have to make a stand. now is that time. we have to make a stand against the tyranny that is being put into place- slowly so as not to make it noticable all at once. make no mistake- our lives have changed forever. do we want our freedoms? or are we going to hand them over to people who really don't give a shit about anything other than power? the time is now- the decision is before us. where do you stand?
